LABOR took a 33-point poll lead over the Tories after the mini-budget, a shock poll showed yesterday.
Sir Keir Starmer’s party is at 54 per cent, PM Liz Truss’s Tories at 21 per cent.
Mr Starmer was selected as the top candidate for No. 10 by 44 percent, compared with 15 points for current incumbent Ms Truss, the YouGov poll found.
But the results were downplayed by senior Tories last night after Mrs Truss made a fight ahead of the Tory party conference.
And other polls gave Labor a much smaller lead.
Deltapoll UK were 19 points clear, Survation 21 points and Redfield & Wilton just 17 points.
A Tory told The Sun: “This is just a poll that takes it way up so it needs to be treated with caution.”
Voters were polled as the pound plummeted against the dollar.
The money market turmoil has rocked the government since announcing £45 billion in tax cuts and scrapping the 45p top earner rate last Friday.
The Bank of England intervened to buy up government debt to prevent pensions from being jeopardized.
Homeowners face a sharp increase in mortgages as they close fixed-rate deals and lenders pull products off the market.
Both Prime Minister and Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng have yet to convince the public that their big-loan tax cut strategy will work.
Panicked Tories fear a Labor Party landslide in the next general election, comparable to 1997 when Tony Blair had a 179-seat majority.
A Tory MP said: “Crashing the economy in a matter of days is not a good start.
“I can’t imagine Liz seeing the year number 10. It’s so serious.”
